studs in jeans - Klaus Struhlik?

Not a hundred percent sure on this ID, but Klaus' name is the first that pops into my mind when I see this pic...

Hope you liked this series -- have a great day!

buddies at the beach

I love photos that pair tall and short men together.

I collected these images in two batches (as if you couldn't tell), from two different sources, two months apart, which tells me these are from some studio, but I couldn't hazard a guess who. The pictures feel very natural and un-posed, which make them that much hotter to me!

Rick Castro's art on display at the Leslie-Lohman Gallery in NYC!

This post is a little late -- symptomanic of my re-occurring computer phobia which has kept me from posting recently -- but you still have until May 29th to visit the Leslie-Lohman Gallery in New York to experience REVEALED: THE TRADITION OF MALE HOMOEROTIC ART -- an exhibition curated by Robert Diamond, held from 12th to 29th May 2010 in New York at the Leslie-Lohman Gay Art Foundation – which is a precious resource for anyone interested in the rich art legacy of the LGBTQ community – and features works made by artists as Robert Mapplethorpe, Rick Castro, Andy Warhol, George Platt Lynes, Marsden Hartley, Charles Demuth, Paul Cadmus, Jared French, Pavel Tchelitchew, Andrey Avinoff, Tom of Finland, James Bidgood, Arthur Tress, Herb Ritts, Don Herron, Duane Michals, Paul Blanca, Mark Morrisroe, Keith Haring, Robert Rauschenberg, Jasper Johns, Horst P. Horst, Hoyningen-Huene, Minor White, Al Urban, Bruce of L.A., Bob Mizer, Mikel Marton and David LaChapelle. A celebration of the sensual male nude and homoerotic expression which reminds the history of suppression and secrecy shaped the development of homoerotic art and homophobia – continuing to affect the creative and artistic output of gay artists, as well as their personal lives -- successful evidence of artistic expression fighting against repression.

I'm sorry to have missed giving you all a heads-up to catch Rick at the opening reception, but please PLEASE take the opportunity to experience this exhibit if you can -- such a wide range of artists in one space is not a thing to miss! I know Rick would love to bring this show to the West Coast, so please cross your fingers and let's hope he can arrange it! Rick is a great guy and a wonderful artist -- he told me how proud he was to be invited to be a part of this show and it is a big feather in his cap. If you've been following his blog (part of my Blog-o-matic found on the right side of this page!) you know that his sojourn in NYC has been full of delights -- I'm so glad for him I could burst!

what a beauty!

I found this image on Willem's wonderful blog, "Pictures of Naked Men." I have no idea who it could be, but for some reason this picture screams "early 70's Dave Martin!" to me...

Lady Gaga - "Telephone - The Afghanistan Remake"

I heard about this just a few moments ago while listening to "All Things Considered" on NPR Radio.

Keep up the good work, guys!
